Korea Abstract: 2017년 1월 30일 미국이 환태평양경제동반자(TPP) 협정에서 공식적으로 탈퇴함에 따라 협정 발효 가능성이 불투명해지면서 아태 역내 주요 메가 FTA인 역내포괄적경제동반자(RCEP) 협정에 대한 관심이 높아지고 있다. 전 세계적으로 보호무역주의 움직임이 확산되고 있어 RCEP이 갖는 의미는 더 없이 중요하다고 하겠다. 본 연구는 GVC 분석을 통해 역내 글로벌 가치사슬이 심화되었음을 확인하고, RCEP 협정을 통한 역내 무역장벽 인하 및 규범의 조화가 갖는 중요성을 설명하였다. 또한 역내 가치사슬의 효율적 활용의 관점에서 RCEP 협상방향에 시사점을 제시하고자 하였다.

English Abstract: The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is an ongoing multilateral trade agreement involving ASEAN member states, Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand. With the global trade slowdown, the importance of the RCEP including various dimensions, such as trade in goods, trade in services, investment, trade facilitating measures, competition, intellectual property, e-commerce, is increasing. In this study, I conduct GVC analysis to identify the intra-regional trade and production network of RCEP-participating countries (RPCs). This study provides a number of indicators that capture the RCEP value chains, and provides a picture of the economic integration within the region. Through this work, we can identify the economic significance of the comprehensive multilateral agreement amid growing complexity of production networks. This study also investigates the level of liberalization in tariffs of ASEAN 1 FTAs, then provides specific policy implications for RPCs to leverage engagement in RCEP value chains.
